Coverage

Petrowatch.com also provides real-time reports on LNG cargo arrivals landing at the country’s four LNG import terminals at Dahej (operated by Petronet-LNG) and Gujarat (Shell and Total) as well as Kochi in Kerala (Petronet-LNG) and Dabhol (Ratnagiri Gas & Power)

Government

Petrowatch.com market intelligence provides critical insights into the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas (MoPNG) in Delhi with its intricate hierarchy of bureaucrats from the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) reporting to the senior-most bureaucrat of the day and ultimately to the oil minister. Also covered is the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) responsible for ensuring compliance with Production Sharing Contracts (PSCs) signed by oil companies for acreage won under the New Exploration Licensing Policy (NELP). Covered in equal measure is the Petroleum & Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) set up to regulate the fast expanding City Gas Distribution (CGD) sector and delivery of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) for vehicles and Piped Natural Gas (PNG) to homes
